that many people are facing maria right now, but is the second huge hurricane in the area. it is following a similar path, so a lot of countries who have already been completely battered are having to face it again. is not the exact same path, for example it made landfall just yesterday in dominika. it has seen its first category five hurricane in recorded history so they are having to race for an extreme situation. as we mentioned, it is following a similar path. these countries that are dealing with it before, the british virgin islands, they are pretty concerned that debris that is still lying around from the last hurricane could get ripped up again the second time and cause extra damage on top of that. the question will be how do you prepare, a lot of the shelters available and you can see why everyone is reading this, so that it could reach puerto rico. if it stays ata could reach puerto rico. if it stays at a category five, they could see their worst, second worst on they

have ever faced. it could change and it doesn't take a lot for it to shift direction, or it to lose or gain intensity, so it really depends as it goes. puerto rico as well, as you mentioned, if it were to la ndfall you mentioned, if it were to landfall there, it would be the first major hurricane to do so since 1998 and you do wonder with these countries how they do prepare, how they get themselves ready for this event and if it is countries that don't see them happened that of then, they are less prepared, they have building regulations and things like that that are not in place to withstand these events. you don't wa nt withstand these events. you don't want to be in a situation where you had to deal with the repercussions and try to rebuild. previous hurricanes cause a lot of damage and can take any amount of time. parts of these islands faced a long time ago, they saw homes and buildings rebuilt now. if you haven't had this happen for a long time, you are not

5:55 am
chilly start, mind you, where skies cleared overnight. temperatures in low single figures in some rural spots. here's the ridge of high pressure then. this weather system will be making inroads for wednesday. meanwhile, this is the weather front, which brought the rain during last night. and there could be a few showers across the south—east as that weather front continues to clear away. but, essentially, it's a nice fine, dry start — a chilly start, mind you, and there will be some mist and fog around. so maybe it could be quite dense in places, central, southern areas across the west midlands into cheshire. eventually, it will start to lift during the morning, potentially into low cloud, before breaking up. but you can see plenty of sunshine on the map there, from northern england in towards scotland. for northern ireland, though, clouds will be thickening up, particularly across western areas, but there could be early brightness across the belfast area. but the cloud is thickening up here because of this weather front, which is slowly making inroads off the atlantic. elsewhere, you'll see a little bit of cloud just bubbling up through the day. there could be an isolated shower, but most places will be dry.
5:56 am
light winds, as well, and despite the chilly start, it should get pleasantly warm into the afternoon. the high teens celsius across central, southern and eastern areas, and there's still some strength in the sunshine. now, as we head on in towards wednesday, this weather front slowly starts to make inroads off the atlantic. we lose our ridge of high pressure, but it will be bringing air from the south—south—west. that's always a mild direction, so temperatures will be on the rise. and, in fact, for the eastern half of the country, it doesn't look too bad. through the day, we'll hold onto some sunny spells, where it will feel quite warm. but further west, it goes downhill, turning windier, outbreaks of rain, quite heavy in parts of western scotland and northern ireland. so mid—teens celsius here, 18 or 19 degrees again across the east and the south—east. now, for thursday, it looks even wetter. this weather front has some pretty heavy rain on it, particularly for the south—west of england, in towards wales, south—west of scotland. could be concerned about rainfall amounts building up there by the time thursday is out.
5:57 am
again, the south—east escaping, seeing the sunshine, and it'll stay warm. now, let's zoom out, head across the atlantic in towards the caribbean because, of course, we've got the next major hurricane making inroads in towards the leeward islands. now, hurricane maria's a major storm, category 4 storm. it's ploughing through some of the islands as it works its way west—north—west. so we could be looking at some destruction, very heavy rain and flooding, and coastal surge. hello, this is breakfast, with louise minchin and dan walker. ryanair e—mails 400,000 customers telling them their flights have been cancelled. after days of criticism, the budget airline publishes the full list of more than two—thousand flights which have been grounded, after it says it messed up its pilots holidays. this morning, the team and i will be finding what it means for you, if you've got a flight booked and what the impact is on ryanair‘s reputation. good morning, it's tuesday the 19th of september.
